Carmine Caridi is a character actor who featured in all three Godfather films.


A notable Italian American actor, Caridi was considered by Francis Ford Coppola for the role of Sonny Corleone in The Godfather, but lost out to James Caan.[1] Caridi has appeared in every Godfather film, as a bystander to Sonny's beating of Carlo Rizzi in Part I, as Carmine Rosato in Part Two and as Albert Volpe in Part Three.

Once a member of the Academy of Arts and Sciences, he was expelled for lending movies he had obtained as a voter to a friend who published pirate videos from the copies.
